P.M.C Services
 

The following are the list of prime importance projects executed by S.T.P.I in the field DataCom and I.T Consultancy Services.


1.0 Khajane NET (The Treasury Department, Govt. of Karnataka)


KhajaneNET is a Project undertaken by Govt. of Karnataka to interconnect all the Treasuries in the state. The Treasuries are interconnected using VSATs to a centralized HUB located at Khanija Bhavan building in Bangalore. The VSAT based Satellite Network is designed to provide Data Services. The VSAT HUB Network is built with sufficient equipment redundancy.

The treasuries in the state conduct financial transactions of Government of Karnataka (both receipts and payments) and render proper accounts of financial transactions. The work of Department of Treasuries is spread across all the Districts and Taluks of the State numbering about 215. All these Treasuries function as ePay and Accounts Office? for all the Govt. of Karnataka transactions. All the MIS reports and reports of expenditure on salaries, pensions, deposits and revenue receipts will be made available to the Government as well as the audit. With the ever-increasing role of the Government in welfare measures and its development activities of Governance, the public expenditure has increased manifold and thus the function of the Treasuries also have increased proportionately.

Keeping in view the criticality of the Data, which will be stored on this network, a Disaster Recovery Center is planned in Dharwad. The disaster recovery center is connected with the Hub by VSAT DVB link and also by a separate SCPC link of 128 Kbps (separate antenna at Dharwad side).

DRC will only serve the purpose of data mirroring and does not envisage any VSAT NMS replication.

STPI has been nominated as the primary nodal agency for the Consulting and Project management for KhajaneNET project. The KhajaneNET owned by the Department of Treasury, Ministry of Finance, Govt of Karnataka, is already operational and being managed by STPI on a 24 x 7 basis.


2.0 Commercial Tax Department, Govt. of Karnataka


With the liberalization process in India evolving, the method of taxation in the states was naturally under review. Indian states even now have the antiquated single point tax while the more advanced economies in the world have moved towards VAT (Value Added Tax).

VAT is a multi point levy of tax on the value addition in various stages. VAT administration therefore requires keeping a track of the transaction. Naturally the volume of data is huge & therefore has to have a large & efficient Information System infrastructure. Government of Karnataka has initiated plans in this regard and with the support of S.T.P.I has successfully implemented the project.

VAT in Karnataka is administered in a networked environment spread across the State in about 90 locations. The interface with taxpayer will be through TPS (Tax Payer Service), which will comprise of LVO (Local Vat Office) in large places and VSO (Vat Sub Offices) in smaller places. These Offices are completely computerized with a server in each LVO and will be on a LAN in client server architecture. VSO will not be having any local server and will be depending on the respective LVO server. Each of these LAN in LVO and VSO are interconnected through VSATs to the central server in which state data resides & generate MIS reports for tax administration at the State level.

STPI has conducted a feasibility study and a design for sharing the existing Hub facility of KhajaneNET  the Treasury Network has been suggested. The KhajaneNET owned by the Department of Treasury, Ministry of Finance, Govt of Karnataka, is already operational and being managed by STPI on a 24 x 7 basis.
